Running for the money

Health care in London received a warm show of support from the community last weekend at the 12th annual Labatt 24-hour relay.

Kelly Luchak, marketing and public relations co-ordinator for Labatt Breweries, said she was very happy with the event's outcome. "It was perfect. Three thousand people from the community contributed to the success. It's a great effort from everyone for health care in London."

Luchak said a total of $423,000 was raised for the Magnetic Resonance Imaging machines for the London Health Sciences Centre and St. Joseph's Health Centre. The machines will aid in the researching and diagnosing of patients. However, because the machines cost $3 million each, Luchak said the fundraising campaign is not over. "We're about a million away," she said.

Luchak added 95 teams participated in the event at Harris Park which called for each team to have one member on the track during the 24-hour span.

Artsy fiesta

Two reasons to party will be recognized in one bash on June 26 at the McIntosh Gallery.

Both staff and visitors will celebrate not only recent renovations to Western's own gallery, but it's 57th birthday as well.

Catherine Elliot Shaw, curator at the gallery, said the renovations have included the replacement of both walls and flooring. As a result of the renovations, Elliot Shaw added a marble floor had been discovered hidden underneath old carpeting. "The marble is going to be restored."

In addition, offices will be relocated downstairs and the entire building will be upgraded. Many of these changes have come as a result of the other recent renovations on campus to add more classroom space.

In attendance will be some of the gallery's artists-in-residence and a group of artists founded in 1960, some of whom have art work displayed in the gallery.

Elliot Shaw said everyone is welcome to attend the festivities.
